I've started building the papercraft Sheik model after finally being happy with the editing and unfold. I had to use some work holidays up, so I'm off on the 16-20th and thought this would give plenty of downtime to work on something creative. And play Fallout 4, let's not forget that...:stare:

So here's a progress journal, which I sometimes do for my bigger models. Here's a few past records: TF2 SoldierRobert LuteceME3 TaliTF2 PyroJavikShepardGarrus

Hmm there's a degree of risk with some of the design choices so perhaps it's no guarantee of a straight 1-2 week build without interruptions like old times, but I will post a new picture here on every day I make some progress!

15th November: Half of a leg!

18th November: Got my car serviced today. Oh and did the arms, plus one hand (not pictured, still drying).

19th November: Things slowing down with more complexity. Hands and some of the head done.

20th November: Some re-tooling of the head's 3D but luckily all worked out ok.

21st November: Finished all the head.

22nd November onwards...Just extra details now. Gonna wind things down because even once done I don't have a good camera for the final pics.

About Me:
Petroleum geologist and artistic dabbler from the north west of England and currently working in Wales.

I'm fascinated with historical military designs, particularly from about 1800-1920 and all the related themes that go with them. The Napoleonic and colonial eras up until WWI and the Interwar period are my favourite areas of inspiration. Aww who am I kidding, WW2 is also very interesting to read up on as well.

My drawn art is mix of dieselpunk military, real world history, characters from my fictional scenario, fantasy characters and fan art of whatever is on my mind at the time.

Besides that I design and build papercraft models using 3D data from games. I've worked on a whole bunch over the years from games on the N64, GC/Wii and PC. The templates are freely distributed in my gallery or over on my old blog. If you ever build any I'm always thrilled to see any pictures you might have! If you have any questions or need help, just ask through a comment or note!

Find me on Steam, the Wii U/Miiverse, and (rarely) Origin, as XenonRay. Message me first so I know who you are though.

Hello there fantastic stranger. :) Here to spread the positive vibes. <3

Because you deserve all of the happiness in the world. You are amazing, you are great, you are loved and worth it. Never forget that. <3
